Siskin Cottage is a 350 year old traditional Suffolk Cottage complete with ingleknook fireplace, Suffolk red brick flooring and beamed sitting room, which includes sofas to seat six people and a dining area for 4.

The kitchen is very well equipped, including diswasher, washing machine, microwave and underfloor heating.

Siskin Cottage has a charming rustic feel, but with all the modern benefits of gas central heating throughout ( underfloor heating in the kitchen and shower room), and a cosy woodburner (multi fuel) in the sitting room.

The kitchen leads to a sunny garden room overlooking the garden with another dining table for 4 and sofa.

The cottage has a downstairs shower room with a corner bath and underfloor heating.

Upstairs is the master bedroom, leading to another charming bedroom with two single beds. All beds have luxurious cotton bed linen and good quality / non allergy pillows and duvets.

At the back of the cottage is a pretty south facing garden which is fully enclosed and ideal for children and pets. The garden is equipped with picnic bench, sun loungers and BBQ.

The property has the benefit of unlimited dedicated broadband / Wi fi connection.

The village of Beyton is a quaint Suffolk village with a central village green, stream and children's play area. Just off the green are the 2 pubs which both serve food.

The cottage is situated down a quiet lane but within easy reach of the A14 with links to Cambridge, Norwich and the historic town of Bury St.Edmunds (five miles).

There is also easy access to the medieval villages of Lavenham and Framlingham, and the cottage is within an hour away from

the Norfolk coastline and it's popular seaside towns of Aldeburgh and Southwold.

The East Anglia region


The local area surrounding Beyton is very pretty with a quiet rural feel, but yet with very easy access to many other places of great interest.

Bury St.Edmunds, which is only about 5 miles away, is a quaint medieval market town, with the Abbey Gardens and the Cathedral being of particular interest.

Just over the border into Norfolk, is Thetford forest, which is popular for family picnics, cyclists and dog walkers.

"Lovely period cottage but a little worn"

Whilst it is easy to appreciate the period features in Siskin Cottage, the fixtures and fittings could do with updating. Damaged kitchen cupboards, repaired bath panel, very worn sofas, both in loung… More

In Response to your comments:
There is 1 damaged kitchen cupboard where people have left the boling kettle underneath it. The bath panel has a 2 inch crack which has been glued as the corner bath was a special order and very tricky to replace.
The floor in the sitting room is a 350 year old red brick flooring with a sea grass mat in the middle. This type of floor should not be covered up as it needs to be left to breathe.
The 1 stain on it was left by a previous guests dog.
The hob dials are worn due to the level of cleaning, the oven buttons are fine.
We will check if the sofas need cleaning and get them cleaned if required.(As a rule, they get cleaned twice a year) We do not think it is unacceptable to expect dog owners not to let their dogs on the sofas for future guests.
We would advise that in the future, these guests would be more suited to a modern property.
